Without matching up the underlying number of TBF (so that it is the same for starters and relievers), a comparison of correlations is worthless.
As it turns out, if you use the same number of underlying TBF (which is difficult obviously, since relievers max out at around 300 or so), you will find that relievers have a HIGHER correlation than starters. My guess is that their true talent changes less from season to season for a variety of reasons, perhaps one of them being more stable health due to fewer pitches thrown.
